Remembered for the giant head sculptures they carved from native stone, the Olmecs had two main population centers as its mentioned in ancient Mexico map: San Lorenzo, which flourished from about 1200 to 900 B.C., and La Venta in Tabasco, which lasted until about 600 B.C.
By 300 B.C., ancient villages based on agriculture and hunting had sprung up throughout the southern half of Mexico as you can see in ancient Mexico map. Monte Albán, home to the Zapotec people, had an estimated 10,000 inhabitants. Between 100 B.C. and 700 A.D., Teotihuacán, the largest pre-Columbian city in the Americas, was constructed near present-day Mexico City.
The ancient Mayans, widely considered to be pre-Columbian America most brilliant civilization, thrived between approximately 250 and 900 A.D. They developed a calendar and writing system and built cities that functioned as hubs for the surrounding farming towns as its shown in ancient Mexico map. The ceremonial center of Mayan cities featured plazas surrounded by tall temple pyramids and lower buildings called “palaces.”
